Hi Mark,
since the correct pronunciation or German game titles frequently comes up, I have begun uploading mp3 files with the German pronunciation of game titles into the files section of BGG.
You will find files for many hard-to-pronounce games such as ‘Adel Verpflichtet.’ I’ll try to upload more as I go along. If you have any particular games you would like to hear the pronunciation for let me know, I’ll be happy to upload them to BGG.

Happy New Year Mark!

Glad to have you back on the airwaves (or webwaves). Thanks for reading those comments I left. I was listening to the podcast at low volume at work when I heard you read someone's comment that sounded oddly familiar. I was happily surprised when I realized you were reading my comments from back in November - I'd totally forgotten about them.

With respect to my BGG.con comments: Not having had the opportunity to attend any of the cons south of the US border prior to BGG.con, I went to Dallas not knowing a soul. By day 2 or 3, I'd met a number of great people. The people I met during the 1st 2 days were generally those I ended up playing with on days 3 and 4. If I were to attend another con, I'd likely seek out the people I met at BGG.con as I'd know what to expect out of them at the game table (i.e. no costumer wearing, among other things). ;o)

Also thought I'd recommend some wines since you mentioned catching up on your vices in your 30 Qs blog entry below. Since you tend to like Rieslings, you might also enjoy Gewurztraminers. They tend to be sweet, fruity full bodied white wines. While they pair well with a number of dishes, we *always* grab a Quail's Gate (Kelowna BC) Gewurztraminer whenever we're having a turkey dinner. Some taster comments can be found at

Thanks for the wine tip! As a matter of fact, I put a Gewurztraminer in to chill last night! (I'd just finished off the Pinot Noir.)

I think those little mp3 uploads are a great idea. Though I'm still staying away from Adel.
